Copeland Planning Visits
Brandon Copeland only played two games at defensive tackle last season for Gilman School, however in that short time he registered 18 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles. The 6-foot-2, 254-pound defensive tackle spent the rest of his junior year playing center, but will be staying on the defensive line when he hits the college ranks. "Right now I'm talking mostly to Virginia, Boston College, Syracuse, Florida State and Louisville," Copeland explained. "I also may go up to Penn State for their junior day because I'm really interested in them and like the campus a lot, but they aren't recruiting me as heavily as a lot of other schools are." "I talk to Coach Randy Trivers from Syracuse and he seems like a good person," Copeland said. "He came to my school and we talked about my film and asked me to come up for their junior day which I'll definitely be going to. I don't know a whole lot about Syracuse, so I am going to make it a point to get there early enough that I can take a tour of the campus and facilities." "My recruiter at Boston College is Coach Ryan Day and we actually talked last week about me coming up for spring practice," Copeland stated. "He said they are very interested in me and I like them as well because they offer very good academics and are also a Top 10 football program." "Coach Anthony Poindexter from Virginia is a great guy and says that they like me on the defensive line. They also want me to come down for spring practices. They are another school with great academics, so I'm definitely interested." Copeland currently carries a 3.4 core GPA and took the SAT in January of 2008. He squats 500 pounds and benches 270 pounds.
